Ancient Ways is a small grassroots charitable nonprofit, located in Lacomb, Oregon, which is dedicated to helping the people of Zimbabwe. Historically, we have provided support to build wells, huts, stoves, and toilets, to rural Zimbabweans as well as have sponsored thousands of children to attend non-free schools. Our current focus is on the children of Nhimbe for Progress and the construction of wells for the extended families in Mhondoro, as well as providing Covid-19 intervention (education and resources). We currently operate a preschool with +-75 children plus a Monthly Care program for over 300 maturing girls, and are repairing the Community Center and rebuilding wells because of the latest effects of recent cyclones. We are very skilled at making a large impact with few resources!

Currently, we are in great need of a volunteer who can offer an average of 3 hours per week to help us continue to develop our online store presence and expansion (for example, Etsy) with village crafts, donated items, and our other Africa related-products. This would involve taking pictures of merchandise, managing communication, and filling orders.

The funds we raise will help us continue with our mission.

If you have these skills and have been looking for a way to use your volunteer time to really make a difference, we might make a great fit! Please contact Jaiaen Beck at gogreen@ancient-ways.org and read more about us at www.ancient-ways.org or chat with her at 541-259-HOPE or 877-TATENDA or WHATSAPP 541-570-9059.
